Sea sponges likely to weather climate change: New Zealand study

WELLINGTON, Sept. 29 (Xinhua) — Some species of sea sponge could be “winners” in global climate change and ocean acidification, New Zealand scientists said Thursday. Researchers from Victoria University of Wellington examined the physiological responses of four Great Barrier Reef sponge species in response to rising acidification and seawater temperature. They found that while all […]
